  1. Baking cookies with a recipe similar to Shortbread but with the addition of Macadamia nuts and White Chocolate, whilst nibbling on the macadamia nuts, is my favourite way to use Macadamia nuts. I love them!

  2. I just like to eat them as they are ,so natural & healthy but have been known to crush them over a salad for a tasty alternative.

  3. I make this cake with Cream around it crush the macadamias nuts and put around it and put tin hole peach halves and tin black cherries on top …A winner every time

  4. Sensational, luscious, tantalising to the lips
    Hedgehog Slice with delicious macadamia bits.
    Succulent chocolate drizzled on top
    That decadent crunch, the ultimate delight.

    With left over chocolate you dip the nuts,
    Smothered in smooth chocolate, a luxurious taste.
    Or chopped up macadamias – a morning treat,
    Added to your muesli, a culinary retreat.

  5. my favourite use for macadamias are in my own chocolate recipe, chai and nut chocolate bar, made with special chai mix,carob powder,almond milk and macadamia nuts.

  6. I love Macadamia Nut Oil, drizzled over a salad. It is delish as a dressing. Plus Macadamia Nut Oil has so many health benefits.

  7. My favourite breakfast is a banana, a cup of spearmint tea, and a small handful of macadamias. It is soothing, destressing, and fills me up until lunchtime.

  8. Apart from my Chocolate Macadamia Nut Torte I love to use them to make macadamia butter! All you do is combine crushed macadamia nuts with butter or oil. I prefer butter but it also has added health benefits if you combine it with olive oil – olive oil solidifies in the fridge. This butter is so versatile you can use it on dry biscuits, such as saladas, or even a sandwich, but can also be used to prepare frostings for cakes, glazes for various types of desserts, and even as an ingredient in recipes.

  9. Nothing fancy as they are fantastic as they are but every morning I start off with a handful in my cereal. A great start to my day.

  10. I use macadamia nuts in place of peanuts… crushed on top of ice-cream, in biscuit recipes and I even make my own macadamia nut butter instead of peanut butter… the kids devour it. And I go NUTS for chocolate-coated macadamias!

  15. Years ago I found the most delicious fruit cake recipe in the Woman’s Weekly from Lindy Milan. The top is covered in macadamia nuts. The cake is already delicious, the macadamias make it extra special. I made 8 as gifts last Christmas and they were a real hit.
    That is one of my favourite ways to use the very yummy macadamia nut.

  16. I mix coffee and ground Macadamias together and soak sponge biscuits in them, layer it with custard, cover it with whipped cream and garnish with chocolate bits. Only to be consumed when no diet freaks are around.

  17. Well…If you are lucky enough to have a nut cracker and buy Macadamia’s in the shell then the shells have a wonderful use of their own. They are brilliant to use in gardens in place of wood chips or pebbles and they look amazing. Recycling at its best.

  18. I love to cook Jamie Oliver’s fig tart using fresh figs from our tree and using macadamias for the frangipane… topped with roughly chopped macadamias… yum!

  28. Uses for macadamia? For eating of course. Straight-up. No time for baking or cooking plus macadamias are plenty delicious on their own!

  29. I crush macadamia nuts and rub them into my skin. The palmitoleic acid softens my skin and doesn’t irritate it like some cosmetics do!

  30. Coating them in chocolate – delicious! The only problem is they have to be hidden under the lettuce so hubby doesn’t find them πŸ™‚

  31. My late Grandma loved macadamia nuts dipped in chocolate and gift wrapped in dainty boxes for family and friends. She used to bring them from Hawaii in the 1980s when they weren’t so readily available here in NSW.

    Then she started bringing them from QLD and enjoyed them later in life when they started stocking them in the supermarket.

    Everytime I see a macadamia nut, I think of my Grandma and her smiling while she ate them. She passed away on Easter Sunday 2012.

    Thanks guys for the memories, it’s kinda like she wants me to think of the happy times xxx

  59. When macadamias are in season i buy them in bulk and use them in everything, my favourite is to crush them up and make a healthy crumbly topping for sweet potato bake.

  60. Macadamias are, to my taste buds, the most versatile of nuts. No other nut can take you from a glorious rocket pesto (excellent on bruschetta) to a luscious caramel pie. And there is no more superior nut to cookie than the macadamia, superb in the white chocolate variation.

  61. Roasting them and using them in a butterscotch toffee cream cake, They make the crunch and smokiness come out amazingly.

  69. Would love to win this competition as it will provide me with hours of enjoyment and my husband doesn’t like macadamias so I can have it all to myself.

  70. I loveeee apple crumble A LOT. My favourite thing to do is to add chopped macademias to the crumble topping and it gives it a boost in flavour. It truly is amazing!

  71. Macadamias in cooking, like biscuits and such,
    But I love to eat them raw, just as much.
